BLOOD RHYTHMS Video Clips
The live debut of BLOOD RHYTHMS was on December 11th, featuring members of ONO: travis, P. Michael, Jesse Thomas, Dawei Wang, Rebecca Pavlatos, and Mimi Wallman alongside myself. Also playing that night was Illusion of Safety as a trio, with only their second performance that utilized a live drummer. This time it was with a stand kit of big drums played by Travis Bird, and they did a rare (possibly final) industrial set. Death Factory and Battleship opened. For the BLOOD RHYTHMS performance, we agreed to start with lots of cacophonous junk metal, including a gargbage pail, a belt sander, and a grinder. The rest of the group started without me while I was outside smoking, without any of us doing a sound check, and so you'll see me come into the mix at about the 5:00 minute mark. There were live projections by a fella named Nate who came in to work with Battleship, the video was filmed by Anna Gregoline. Thanks to Anna and Jesse for the videos! The result is something that seems like an alien satellite transmission from a secret dungeon on the moon. Enjoy!
